Natalie is ten years old when she is kidnapped by guerrillas from her grandparents' farm in Rhodesia. Bloodied, terrified, and beaten at the hands of her captor, her life is saved when a young soldier comes to her rescue.
Thirty years later, Natalie returns to her homeland, now Zimbabwe. She becomes embroiled in the dangerous world of rhino conservation. Hunters are making a fortune on the black market by selling the horns and the survival of the black rhino is at stake. Natalie and her family must fight - not only to save Zimbabwe's rhinos, but to save themselves from the enemies who surround them.
Spanning fifty years and three generations, African Dawn is the breathtaking saga of three families dealing with dark secrets and violent threats.
